    Earlier this week, I stopped in at my favorite local fun shop. I was browsing the pistol cases and, my eyes wandered to a 3913. I always have wanted to shoot one but, I didn't know anyone that owned one. I had also been searching for something with an ambi safety and, a smaller grip for new shooter instruction. This one didn't appear to be shot much and, wasn't in too bad of shape. (Just a couple of dings) and the white dots on the rear sight were missing.

    So, after thinking on it, I decided that I "needed" to bring it home. I'm very pleased with it.

    I shot 150 rounds of WWB and, it was 100% reliable with strong consistent ejections. I can see why these pistols have their reputation. The only thing that I don't care for is the magazine disconnect but, no big deal.

    They are good guns. I have a 908 which is a blued budget version of your gun. It is accurate and has been 100% reliable so far.

    Congrats and enjoy your new purchase!

    I have one on my list of "if I find one" guns Congratulations

    BTW the mag disconnect isn't there by accident. I am one of the people who don't mind them, but my training was a little different than most.

    You spend enough time shooting a 3913 and you'll wonder why all similarly sized 9mm pistols can't be as tolerant of "shooter & ammunition" influences. ;)

    Very nice. I think they will get more desirable and pricey as time goes on.

    CONGRATS ON THE 3913! I hope to find one myself someday.

    The 6906 is a FANTASTIC gun! I had one but traded it straight up for a S&W 686 "no dash".......from my dad:wavey:


    The beauty of it is that I will get the 6906 back someday:whistling:


    Enjoy your awesome find!!!!!!!

    Congrats! I've been debating whether to get the 6906 or this. I haven't made my mind up yet. As the prices continue to soar, I think I'm going to commit to one real soon. Again, Cograts on a great looking piece! You need to get the flush-fit magazines for those. I think they're on Midway. :cool:

    Thanks, I'm planning on picking up a few more magazines at some point.

    Thanks, I don't think my 3rd Gen Smith collection will end here.
